I have taken birth control for over 5 years with no major issues...until now. Like many of you, CVS suddenly gave my Tri Previfem instead of my usual Tri Sprintec the last time I got the prescription filled about a month ago. I read all the horrible reviews on here but decided to give it a chance, anyway. Everything seemed to be going OK until about a week ago when the calf of my left leg started ... Show Full Comment

CVS gave this to me a couple months ago instead of Tri sprintec, and ever since I started taking this everything has went downhill. I've gained about 15 lbs, have terrible mood swings, get depressed for no reason, and i'm very emotional at all times. It also has CAUSED me to have acne. The only positive thing that has come from it is that i'm not pregnant. Getting switched back ASAP!

Upon starting this medication, I immediately noticed a change in my mood. My patience and ability to deal with stress is not what it once was. I find myself crying througout the day for various reasons. Prior to taking this medication, I used an anti-anxiety drug that I would take at the onsight of anxiety. However, after starting the Tri-Previfem, I've had to start taking the anti-anxiety med ... Show Full Comment

I gained over 10 lbs in 1.5 months. Companies that tell you it's a myth, well it's complete bullshit. They know that will stop many patients from taking it, who wants to gain that much weight? I've been off for a week now & have lost 5 lbs. WALKING PROOF. (also, I commented below I have never had a past with panic attacks or anxiety until taking this drug)
